Foundations of the Faith
Parents, are you desiring to pass on biblical truth to the next generation? Do you understand the ever increasing need for a solid biblical worldview as the culture becomes increasingly pagan in its beliefs?
For the church to survive to the next generation as a pillar of truth in this world (1 Timothy 3:15 ) we must be consistent in our approach to teaching the youth biblical truth.
During this summer, I’d like to introduce a stream of instruction that runs parallel with the biblical instruction occurring through working the Bible on Sundays. This stream is one of basic Christian doctrine. And it will be aimed at parents and children so that all generations may be able to contend for the faith (Jude 3).
This time will be built around a wonderful meal and time of fellowship five times this spring and summer.
Regardless of the age of your children, I know you will benefit from this intentional time of fellowship and instruction. Please invite others to join us too. All we ask is for you to let us know in advance if you are attending so we can plan accordingly for the food. Please fill out this short form to let us know how many are joining usthis Monday night.
The meal will be served sharply at 6PM – we encourage families to come early if they can to help set up. The evening will conclude at 7:10PM. If the weather is nice, we may stay at the church and use the lawn for some outdoor games of football, soccer, Frisbee, etc.
Mark and Mary Howells will continue their commitment to participate in the First Chair classes as mentors.
Purpose: To equip parents and children with a solid foundation of Biblical truth from which their lives can be shaped to know God’s greatness and to live for His glory.
Content: Basic Christian doctrine – the primary source will be the New City Catechism*. http://www.newcitycatechism.com/home.php *A catechism is an instructional guide for the basic doctrines of the Christian faith based around questions and answers.
Participants: Parents, grandparents, children, and youth (all generations) from the church. There will be an emphasis to invite other families outside the church who are interested in fellowship.
Fellowship Format: A basic meal will be provided each week consisting of a simple main dish, bread, fruit/veggie, and a dessert.
During the last part of the meal time there will be a teaching on the content from approximately four questions from the Catechism.
